HOW WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

When you visit our Site, we collect information sent to us by your computer, mobile phone, or other access device.  The information sent to us may include but is not limited to the following: data about the pages you access, computer IP address, device ID or unique identifier, device type, geo-location information, computer and connection information, mobile network information, statistics on page views, traffic to and from the sites, referral URL, ad data, and standard web log data and other information.  If you become a registered user of our customer portal or if you conduct transactions through this website, we will collect information about the transactions you engage in while on the Site, including transaction type, transaction amount, payment, and billing information as well as the nature, quantity and price of the goods or services you exchange and the individuals or entities with whom you communicate or transact business with. We may also collect anonymous information through our use of cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts.

 

Information You Provide to Us

We may collect personal information, such as your name, address, phone, email and other similar information that you enter directly onto or in connection with our Site.  Generally, personal information is requested when: (i) Fullerton customers register to use the customer portal area of our Site and (ii) when visitors to our Site request certain information about Fullerton Tool products and services.  If you fail to provide the requested personal information, you may not be able to access all or portions of the Site or purchase products and services.

 

Other Methods of Collection

We may also collect information from you in other ways, such as through your contact with our customer support team, your results when you respond to a survey, and your interactions with members of Fullerton Tool employees or through other companies.

 

How We Use Tracking Technologies

Fullerton Tool Company and its partners use cookies or similar technologies to expedite the user login process, remember user experience settings, analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movements around the website, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.  You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level.  If you reject cookies, you may still use our website, but your ability to use some features or areas of our website may be limited.

 

We may partner with a third party to display advertising on our website or to manage our advertising on other sites.  Our third-party partner may use cookies or similar technologies in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests.

 

Service Provider Data Collection and Processing

In some cases, Fullerton Tool administers the Site on behalf of our customers, and in these circumstances, we have no direct relationship with the individuals about, for, or from whom the personal information is collected.  If you are a customer or end user of a Fullerton Tool direct customer (for example, you are an end user of our customer’s product or service) and you have questions or complaints about how your information is processed, then please contact our customer directly.  You understand that your use of the Site may be subject to terms and policies provided by our customer and that Fullerton Tool is not a party to such agreements.

 

HOW WE USE THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT – PURPOSES AND LEGAL BASES FOR PROCESSING

Our primary purpose for collecting and processing personal information is to provide you with a smooth, secure, and efficient visitor and customer experience.  We may also use your personal information:

  • To communicate with you by responding to your requests, comments, and questions.
  • To develop new website features and improve overall user experiences.
  • To generate insights on expansion of product and services offering.
  • For site customization related to previous interests, transactions, and purchases.
  • To send emails and other communications. We may send you new product, service, technical, and other administrative emails, and other types of communication.  These are marketing messages, so you can control whether you receive them.
  • For billing, account management and other administrative matters.

 

To the extent that we collect certain demographic information about you, we may use this information in our market research, but we will do so only after we “anonymize” the data, i.e., remove information that would confirm your identity. 

 

HOW WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES

Fullerton occasionally partners with a third party to provide services on its behalf.  We may provide your information to third parties, or third parties may collect information from you on our behalf if we have contracted with that third party to provide some part of the information or service that you have requested. By written agreement, these third parties are required to implement similar security measures and will process your information only as authorized by us to fulfill the service that they have been contracted to provide.

Other than those who act on our behalf and except as explained in this Policy, information you provide at this Site will not be transferred to unrelated third parties, unless we have your permission to do so. However, please note that personal information provided to this Site is subject to disclosure pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants or orders. We will only provide this information after approximately two weeks following receipt of a valid subpoena or other legal process in a civil case.

We allow you to control the disclosure of your non-public personal information to third parties for the marketing of third-party products and services (i.e., your consent is required for disclosure). We must disclose information, when requested, to comply with court orders or subpoenas.

 

HOW WE PROTECT AND STORE PERSONAL INFORMATION

Your privacy and the security of your personal information are important to us. We maintain and protect the security of our servers and your personal information. To secure the information we collect online, prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure only appropriate use of information, we have established appropriate physical, electronic and management safeguards. We require user names and passwords to access sensitive data. Unless you authorize unencrypted transmission, we will use industry standard encryption methods to protect your data transmission.

 

HOW YOU CAN OPT-OUT OF PERSONAL INFORMATION SHARING WITH OUR BUSINESS PARTNERS

Other than agents who act on our behalf, the information you provide through our Site will not be transferred to unrelated third parties unless we have your permission to do so. You can opt out at any time by contacting us at optout@fullertontool.com or by sending us a letter to “OPT OUT”, FULLERTON TOOL COMPANY, 121 Perry St., Saginaw MI 48602.

COMPLIANCE WITH CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY

We understand the importance of protecting the privacy of all individuals, especially the very young.  We neither target nor sell our services to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from them.  Subscribing to our online service is restricted to adults who are either 18 years of age or older or as otherwise legally defined.

 

WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR INFORMATION DURING A CHANGE TO FULLERTON’S BUSINESS

While we do not anticipate it, every business nowadays should plan for the possibility it might sell certain or all of its assets to another company or individual, or that it might buy certain assets of another company or individual.  If all or part of the company is sold, merged or otherwise transferred to another entity, the personal information you have provided to us may be transferred as part of that transaction.  However, we will take steps to ensure that your personal information is used in a manner consistent with the provisions of our Policy.

 

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

We may, on occasion, update our Policy.  Your acceptance of any minor changes to this Policy is indicated by your continued use of our Services.  If we make any material changes to our Policy, we will post a notice about the change at a prominent location on our Site.  We encourage you to periodically review our Site and this Policy for any changes.
